One of the most popular actors on the planet today, Samuel L. Jackson has appeared in over 100 films since his career began.
He’s currently the highest-grossing actor of all time with his movies bringing in a collective $27 billion worldwide. For someone whose career has spanned over 30 years and has basically been in everything, you would assume it’ll be a challenge to pick his top five. Well, not for Samuel L. Jackson.
On Wednesday’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Jackson confirmed that, unlike some actors, he watches all his movies.
“Some actors lie to you about that. They watch their movies,” Jackson said. “It’s a ‘watch me’ business, that’s why we’re here. If I’m channel surfing and I haven’t found anything I want to watch, or not specifically looking for something, and I pass something I’m in, I stop and watch it.” He also added.
The host, Steven Colbert took that and went a step further by asking Jackson to name his top five Samuel L. Jackson movies. And for a guy who was a big part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and has basically been in everything, his list might not be what you would quite expect.
Here’s his list,
The Long Kiss Goodnight
A Time To Kill
One Eight Seven
Yes, i know, PULP FICTION DID NOT MAKE HIS TOP FIVE!

However, there’s one important bit to notice from this five selections. All five movies were released between 1996 and 1998. That would mean this period was a pretty memorable time for Jackson in his career.
